Being both Japanese and an immigrant in the United States, my personal experiences with both countries make me think deeply about my individual identity. I realize how difficult it is to express our own individual identities in a collectivistic society. Through my art, I raise an awareness of the unique qualities of the individual and present to viewers an opportunity to both interpret and accept individual differences which create unique strengths and qualities of each individual.
